I've never been a big lipstick girl, but I do like a little subtle color. I find glosses too sticky/shiny without enough hydration. Burt's bees tinted lip balm is my favorite thing in the world but it's ruined after one sunny afternoon in the park. I've been using regular lip balm with nars satin lip pencils to get my color fix, but I feel like there has to be a good one-step solution. Help?
Hey guys!! I just wanted to know a good everyday blush color, 'flesh-toned' eye shadow, and nude lip color for my complexion. I love bright, colorful makeup, but I'm a student and I wanted something a bit more toned down for everyday wear. If we go by MAC shades, I'm NC 44-45 (a bit on the lighter side now that it's winter). I have gold/yellow undertones that look sort of 'blegh' now that I've gotten lighter (seriously, it looks like jaundice. Not cute). I'm sort of new to wearing blush, so I'm definitely a little shy in that area. I just want it to show up on my face without overwhelming it (if that makes ANY sense, whatsoever....) Any and all help would be deeply appreciated!!
Anyways heyyyy everyoneeee I'M BACK. I HAVE NOT BEEN ON HERE IN SOOOOOO LONG. I have a small dilemma and I know that you girl will be able to help me out hopefully!!!! SO- I contemplated for about two weeks on which KA celestial highlighter to buy "candlelight vs. starlight". Now after all the pics I had seen on various blogs, websites, and every where else we look when were trying to find out info about a produt...I went on the edge...lol and ordered the less popular, more new to the crew starlight. now let me just tell you the picture on Sephora and actually almost every other site that carries ka,,let me tell you it almost seems as thought they are taking a picture of the Nars highlighter "miss liberty" which is actually a very light pink in reality and on the website!... instead of KA's starlight which looks like the same kind of color online but in reality its like a deep pink color.... I was very shocked on how much darker and how not light it is at all! I just got it from ups today... and I had used a Guerlain aerosol/ ]bronzer spray on my face today...so I figured I'd wait until tomorrow to try it out on my regular foundation. I live in an area where I'll have to go to Boston to see both highlighters up close and personal and its not that far at all but is it worth it to get in the car? lol That's why this is BOGGELING my minddd and hopeee some of you guys on here have used/ own/ or at least tested out both starlight and candlelight. All and Any Feedback will be GREATLYYY appreciated!!!! thanks BT'S!!!!
I have only had samples of both of these eyeshadow primers and was wondering which one was everyone's favourite. I am looking to repurchase and while I am leaning slightly towards Shadow Insurance, it has been a while since I have tried the Primer Potion. So what are your opinions on one or either?
I'm looking for a new eye primer. I have Too Faced Shadow Insurance and it's too thick and makes shadow clumpy on me. I also have UD classic eye primer and that's too sticky and doesn't work for me. Any other suggestions? Thanks so much!! :-)
So the contour cream kits are now available at Anastasia Beverly Hills. They come in 3 shades: Light, medium & deep. I've heard great things about the contour creams and I'm sooo interested in getting one since I've started doing more contour work. However, I haven't had the greatest experience ordering directly from ABH. Does anyone know if Sephora will be carrying the ABH contour cream kits any time soon??
Hey there Right now UD is having a 20% on there site im quite new to the High End world and Was wondering doesnt Sephora have a 20% there site and store in april?? I saw that some where. There are some ud products i want and i was wondering if i should wait til then? I am 131 from VIB do I have to be VIB before then to get the 20% off in sephora?? Thanks Ladies!
Spring break is coming up and I'm wondering what the best type of foundation is to use...a light, normal foundation, bb cream, cc cream? The problem is I need something with full coverage, since my biggest problem is acne scars that I need to hide. Right now I have a whole procedure involving moisturizer, primer, liquid foundation and powder foundation, and I'd rather not lug all that on vacation. Anyone have any knowledge or experience for the best hot weather, lightweight, full-coverage makeup?
i would go to a counter but i just really hate going to the mac macy's store for this kind of thing. i can go in for lipstick and lipliner and anything else but i can never go in and get shade matched. they either recommend a different concealer i do not want or they match me way too dark and orangy im custard in nars creamy concealer and im fiji in nars sheer glow. please and thank you i do say im cool toned but than again im not that sure im pale and turn red easily so i assume im cool toned
Hello! I'm looking for an everyday highlighter that looks natural and also doesn't highlight pores. I'm quite fair, with slight warm undertones, dark blonde hair and blue eyes. Some highlighters I was looking at were the Kevin Aucoin Candlelight, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, and the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (I think the name is something close to that?$. Which of these do you prefer/think would work best with my colouring? Or is there any other favourites you would reccomend?
Has anyone tried or recommend the new Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation? I saw lots of great reviews about it. I wear the shade Mont Blanc in the Nars Sheer-Glow foundation, would color 2 match me in this new foundation?
I'm going to Paris next week, and I want to stock up on beauty products! I heard French drugstores have great stuff (Bioderma!) but I don't know much about anything else. I'm definitely going to visit the Sephora there though
I know some people either love this or really dislike it. I'm in the in-between crowd where it doesn't irritate my skin but it doesn't really do much for it either. Anyways, i will be giving away a brand new jar of the mask. Sticking with the favorites theme, it will go to the person who can guess my favorite actor. Only for people living in the US. hint: its not a TV star.
I am a 69 year old senior and always on the lookout for the perfect lip color. I have blonde hair, olive complexion and brown eyes. My lips are not big, so i like to over-paint them. Please tell me if you have suggestions. i am not afraid of color. i normally wear a tinted moisturizer, mascara, blush, and undereye concealer.
Hello everyone! Hope everyone's having a gorgeous day! I need some good recommendations for an undereye setting powder and maybe a new concealer recommendation while I'm at it. My major concern is having the concealer look natural and having it not settle into fine lines. Here's some info about me: -I'm a 2y09 with the IQ system here (so I'm kind of a coppery/tanned tone irl) -I have dry/normal skin with no blemishes anywhere besides the eye -Genetic dark circles that are a ***** to cover -I have seasonal allergies (Spring/Fall mostly) -Right now I use MUFE HD Concealer in 12 -I use LM Tinted Moisturizer in Tawny I heard a lot of people recommend the Anastasia contour palette but I don't want to buy a whole palette if I'm going to use one color, you know? But I also have to do what I have to do so if it's highly recommended I'll bite the bullet. Thank you for your help!
omg..so I just received and opened my package ..and im mortified by what I see.. I got the urban decay smoked palette and it looks used or swatched..notice Kinky the lightest color has bristle strokes across..then evidence, loaded and asphalt all look like they have finger swatches..how can this be? Lol was someone doing their makeup at the warehouse or what..
So i just purchased Better than sex mascara yesterday , and i Got YSL shocking mascara today , i like both of them but i dont need both of them , i dont know which one to keep now , what do you think? And whats your favorite mascara and why?
Hi everyone, so I was wondering if someone could help me find the best foundation for me. I have very dry skin yet its also very oily. I also have acne and lots of acne scaring. When I wear a foundation or BB cream my skin always ends up peeling underneath of the foundation no matter how much moisturizer I use. I also want it to cover up my scars and blemishes but not be too thick. I really want to find a foundation that will cover everything I want it to, not crack up, wear all day, and not look caked. Thanks!
Hi you Bite fanatics! So we already have a discussion on the released colors here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/Bite-Lip-La b-Sephora-color-of-the-month/td-p/1847087 but I wanted us to have a place to discuss what colors we were hoping would be released. For instance, what color would put you over the edge to make a purchase? For me, I would really love to see a sheer black.... or something similar to Givenchy Liv's Lips, or Lipstick Queen's Hello Sailor. I think that would be pretty amazing!! Especially if it's a Bite formula. Basically, I won't buy colors that are very common or easily dupe-able. Also, as a sidenote, it'd be really cool if people who went to the Bite Lip Lab could somehow figure out what the color formula is for the limited releases... It would look something like this, I guess: Formula: Creme Deluxe Scent: ? Flavor:? Colors: 2/3 Scarlet, 1/3 Tannin (just an example)
Hi everyone! I'm looking for a new concealer and stumbled across the MUFE Full Cover concealer. I have my Nars concealer, but it's a bit too pink for me in the shade Honey. Any swatches for light-medium neutral skin? If you have full swatches, that would be great, too! -Katie
Hi everyone! I have the Pro Platinum Airbrush #55 (the one with the silver handle) and absolutely love it! I've used it so much though that it's about time to get a new one, except it's already discontinued. Is the new #55 anything like the old one in terms of size/shape? Are there other brushes that are quite similar? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance !
WHAT? WHY? WHYYYYYYYYYYY? The five stages of grief for a discontinued product: 1. Denial: "What? Maybe they just moved it off the display to make room for the new items. Can you search the back again?" 2. Anger: "WHY the heck would they do this? This is .... this will not stand! I'm .... AHHHH!" 3. Bargaining: "Can you just check the stock to see if you have any left? Ebay, yeah, I'll try that!!!! If you bring it back, I promise to repurchase regularly!" 4. Depression: "I really wanted that. Now it's gone. It's gone and it's too late. I ... what's the point of even going to Sephora now?" 5. Acceptance: "Ok, Google, give me a dupe for my discontinued holy grail." We all have this happen to us- whether it be the discontinuation of our absolute favorite product, or the cessation of selling a product you were always planning on buying but never got a chance too... Here is where we can support each other after the products we want are discontinued.
I have heard a lot about this concealer. I was planning to return my select cover up concealer by MAC (does it stay as long as the pro longwear?) and exchange it for the Pro Longwear Concealer. But I go into the store and attempt to squeeze out the tiniest of product but it turned into this puddle across the back of my hand. What do you think of MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer? Is there any way to get a tiny bit of product out, because I only plan to use them under my eyes.
Hey lovlies, I just looked at my favorite lip liner and it's down to a nub, isn't that sad?? I need to fine a dupe for it since I don't see in on Sephora. I like that I can sharpen it like a pencil and how it goes on so smooth. And Papua is such a great neutral shade. I've tried the Nars Velvet lip liners but I'm not a big fan. I'll use them once my Papua bites the dust. Please help.
